Neuhaus Partners funded our project verwandt.de (first round). Just took about three to four weeks from first meetinng to notary appointment. Really quick. Dr. Neuhaus (founding partner) is very impressive, one of the leading enterpreneurs in Germany. Paul Jozefak (partner) is leading partner on the deal. Has an excellent network: e.g. got es a TechCrunch post. Great help!

Great Personal Relationship

Fund: Neuhaus Partners

Posted by Jascha on 2008-03-05

PUBLIC:

Knowing Paul from regular Open Coffee Club meetings in Hamburg, which he initiated via his blog, we met rather informally for lunch to talk about some ideas, without even being in a current need of funding at this stage. He supported us with great input, asked pretty precise questions and gave us new perspectives on our project.

As convenient as this first meeting was, Paul kept on the ongoing conversations. He really enjoys to meet entrepreneurs at a very early stage, whether or not this results in an investment in the end. His nature of establishing a really personal and friendly relationship on the one hand, combined with highly sophisticated and qualified support and commitment on the other hand, makes Paul and the Neuhaus Partners team one of my top priority venture firms.

Little Talk, Lots of Action

Fund: Neuhaus Partners

Posted by amirzaee on 2008-03-03

PUBLIC:

Looking for a possible Series A match, I met Paul Jozefak for a coffee. Very informally, I pitched our idea and progress and was positively surprised by how quick he grasped the whole idea, identified core value drivers and offered great feedback and input on how to improve elements of the projects.

Paul is of course not Neuhaus Partners all by himself but if youre a high tech starup you will most probably deal with him first. And you will do good in doing so. He does not waste any time, talks and works efficiently, straight down to the point. Yet, he is at all times a 100% involved, not needing much more than a minute to get into a subject or project, its current problems and options. Paul's input is practical, customer oriented and fact based. He has a great network at hand and is quick using it.

Just as hard as Paul works for your business once he is involved, he is hard on the terms as well though. Generally, Neuhaus wants to keep keep your investors structure lean and clear.

Overall, Paul and Neuhaus Partners are a great addition to your startup team and a strong ally that offers great competency, involvement and network.

Extremly Fast, Fair and Supportive

Fund: Neuhaus Partners

Posted by berlin on 2008-01-28

PUBLIC:

We pitched the whole Neuhaus team for seed investment on a Friday mid 2007 and signed one week later- I have hardly ever met a team that fast in making decisions. Negotiations went very fair, although Matthias Grychta (our investment partner) and Matthias Brix are tough guys, hard on facts.
Since then both of them have been very supportive, good sparring partners and made some great introductions - we can call them whenever needed. www.viif.de

Becoming a Part of Your Team: Paul Jozefak

Fund: Neuhaus Partners

Posted by daniel on 2007-09-26

PUBLIC:

I am not that much familiar with Neuhaus Partners, I used to work with Paul Jozefak when he was leading SAP Ventures Europe. Paul is different to many VCs I met. And I met quite a few of them between 1997 and now. He is not limited to number crunching but he really tries to make things happen. It is not only Paul knowing the technology market in Europe and in the US, it´s not only Pauls contacts around the globe and his background and CV. The most important thing from my point of view is that Paul really becomes a part of the mangement team of the company he or his fund is invested in. He starts thinking like you. We already received the investment from SAP before Paul joined, so it was not "his investement". But he really took care and spent time - both, working with our team to get our strategy optimized and fighting internally to get more support for us from SAP. He is very pragmatic and gets things done. No need for bullshit bingo if you talk to him. He has a great feeling for who it is worth working with and what/who is a waste of time. I think that is very important for a VC since not all ventures and enterpreneurs will make it and the resources (not only the money you could spend) are always kind of limited. He does not at all waste the money of his investors putting it somewhere. He really tries to get the highest possible return- for them AND for the enterpreneur ...and maybe for himself too.
Paul is a very trustful person, you can discuss with him like a friend without paying attention whether or not you should share this or that information with him ("the VC") - and without disguising yourself. That is a big PRO and definitely not always the case.

Invest & More

Fund: Neuhaus Partners

Posted by RalfM on 2007-09-18

PUBLIC:

Two of my clients - the 1st is in Web 2.0 / B2B business, the 2nd in the area of secure Mobile software solutions recently pitched to Neuhaus Partners.
The Neuhaus people we met so far - Mr. Gottfried Neuhaus (Founding Partner), Paul Jozefak (Managing Partner) & Thomas Golinski (Investment Manager) were smart, professional & honest.
Paul quickly understood/assessed the different underlying technologies, business models and opportunities.
In case 1 he not only took the lead for the first multi-million Euro funding round but also arranged & managed a significant co-investment by prestigious public German KfW Bank.
In case 2 we got valuable advise for our go-to-market-plan, closing reference customers and prepare for a first funding round after another Angel round.

Profound Assistance

Fund: Neuhaus Partners

Posted by mikebull on 2007-09-14

PUBLIC:

Neuhaus Partners just invested in our company (September 2007) and from an entrepreneurial standpoint the discussions with them were straightforward as this VC is used to deal with hightech companies and Internet-related business concepts like ours. From my point of view Neuhaus Partners is especially of interest if your business idea has international aspects. They are able to assist by providing contacts from their European and American network.

Neuhaus as Lead Investor

Fund: Neuhaus Partners

Posted by Stephan R. Boehm on 2007-09-08

PUBLIC:

Recently we closed a funding round with Neuhaus Partners as lead investor. The way they structured the deal from their site was professional and fair. Paul Jozefak as our responsible venture partner is straight forward and as a half american he adds value in terms of contacts and connections to our global expansion course beside the money. As our business is rather located in the States than in Europe, we looked at the beginning for an US VC, but pitching and meeting was quite difficult from Germany. With Neuhaus as a german VC company and Paul as Partner with US connections, we found a good solution on that. Our responsible Investment Manager Thomas Golinski is a great guy to talk to and we were never concerned to raise a topic if necessary. So all in all a perfect fit for Emporis and our expansion course.

CEO

Fund: Neuhaus Partners

Posted by Stefan on 2007-08-20

PUBLIC:

Neuhaus Partners has invested in our firm a few years ago. Gottfried Neuhaus the founding partner really helped us a lot all the way from making an IPO to merging the company. We stayed in touch ever since. The are very nice, supportive and honest people and I always found it a pleasure to work with them. Paul Jozefak who recently joined the team has added an international network that I consider to be very helpful for companies that plan on going international.
